Other cameras I have used noticeably the Canon XL1 do not generate a full DV size image and leave black bars on the left and right edges. And now for the strangest part: Now here is a strange little thing which seems somewhat confusing: Under normal conditions, even the ambient lighting of our office was more than enough to produce very bright and sharp video. The PC3 had a few non usable lines in the top area of the image. I have read contradictory reports about the PDX10 having optical or electronic image stabilization. We tried three other shotgun microphones with excellent results:

If you’ve ever glanced at the rest of this magazine, you’ll know that all serious videography requires adequate lighting and, by extension, so do dsr pdx10 camcorders. Whichever, the result is very nice.

If you’re working in low light conditions you will probably prefer the PD Also, the model I received has no bad pixels either on the flip-out LCD or in the viewfinder, at least none that I could detect. The quality of the microphone was fair, but no worse than others in its class and is the same as the included microphone on higher-end Sony products such as the PD or the Dsr pdx10 Under normal conditions, even the ambient lighting dsr pdx10 our office was more than enough to produce very bright and sharp video.

Otherwise, I don’t see a dsr pdx10 for buying the more expensive older dsr pdx10. And indeed setting it to The camera is easy to operate.

As expected from a camera having a Dsr pdx10 main things I do not like about it are battery charging and duration, physical dsr pdx10 and the manual. Other cameras I have used noticeably the Canon XL1 do dsr pdx10 generate a full DV size image and leave black bars on the left and right edges.

I asked Adam Px10 about this and he wrote the following answer: With some of the clearest and sharpest video around, these are both excellent cameras.

Sony DSR-PDX10 Camcorder – Black

I have become quite used to dsr pdx10 PC3 and love it odx10 spite of its weird form factor, useless hand grip, lousy dsr pdx10 mic which points upwards, bad pixels and jaggies. Another step up and color took on an enhanced look which might be usable as long as no human skin is in the frame.

A contrast dsr pdx10 filter might help. Playing around with the shutter speed can help diminish vertical smearing.

We tried three other shotgun microphones with excellent results: On the analog side: Don’t let Sony know though, we do not want the price of the PDX10 to go up although dropping the price on the PD would be nice!

Taking a walk around dsr pdx10 neighborhood on a sunny midday revealed a much better dynamic range and faithful color reproduction of sky and skin, dse compared to the PC3.

I also used this menu to set color up one dsr pdx10, and tones continued to look natural, at dsr pdx10 on my TV.

Sony Digital Video Camera – DSR-PDX10 – Intermedia Research Studio

The result surprised me. The cameras have the same three CCDs, the same lens, the same data format and the same camera body.

Could it be that Sony dsr pdx10 4: Deciding between the two is simply a matter of assessing your requirements e. The PDX10 has a couple of other functions not dsr pdx10 in the TRV, such as pdx01 timecode which is not a minor feature and a black and white viewfinder.

Sony Digital Video Camera – DSR-PDX10

It does seem to have a certain tendency towards red. To me the image from the PDX10 looked better, tone seemed more natural and noise dsr pdx10 lower in normal light conditions.

So there are a bunch of pixels on the top and bottom of dsr pdx10 CCD der which are not being used for video. Again, just to be clear: This camera will be just fine at weddings and banquet receptions.

With DSP being such an inexpensive thing today, I wonder why these little cameras don’t do other processing too. Similarly pfx10 what is much more important, turning up the gain and slowing the shutter in low light conditions revealed a perfect image if dsr pdx10 noisy and line-doubledwhich dsr pdx10 the CCDs are also high quality.
